THE NECESSITY OF AN OPEN HEAVEN – Daily Devotional

SCRIPTURAL TEXT:  LUKE 4:25

“Certainly there were many needy widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the heavens were closed for three and a half years, and a severe famine devastated the land”.

When you are at a door which is closed, you will obviously not be able to enter in or have access to whatever is on the other side. In the same way, when the heaven is closed over you, you will not be able to access all the treasures God has in store for you. Remember that the heavens are God’s treasure (Deuteronomy 28:12). As a believer, there are so much blessings God has ordained for you to possess while you are still on earth. But like in our scriptural text, when the heaven is shut over you, all you will experience is bareness and dryness. Things may seem not to work for you no matter the effort you put in; this is because you are not experiencing heavens supply.

However, throughout the scriptures, whenever there was an open heaven, it was associated with notable dimensions of favor and abundance (Deuteronomy 28:12), unusual dimensions of revelation and encounters (Ezekiel 1:1), miracles, signs (Psalms 79:23), and wonders. Then, the necessity of an open heaven cannot be over-emphasized. We will be left to toil day and night with little to show for it. When the heavens are open over you, your life will be that of constant flow in all ramifications.  

Look around the different areas of your life where you see the signs of bareness, dryness, and difficulties. It may be an indication of closed heaven on you. But, the Good news is that God said there shall be no barren among his people (Exodus 23:26) so unfruitfulness, unproductivity, lack, and bareness have no place in your business, womb, family, and church! Start today by praying for and following the principles of open heavens.
